Important School Bus Safety Alert
Help us to protect your children as they travel to and from school!
Please talk with your child about the following safety rules:

Certain types of children's clothing can create a hazard as your child gets off the school bus.
Especially dangerous are:

  • Long dangling jacket or sweatshirt drawstrings.
  • Long backpack straps
  • Long scarves or other loose clothing.
Such clothing can be caught in the bus handrail, door, or other equipment as the child gets off the bus.
In recent years, a number of children acreoss the U.S. have had their clothing caught as they exited the bus.
Several of these children were dragged by the bus and then killed when the bus ran over them.
Please take the time to check your children's clothing to make sure it is safe.
Remove drawstrings from clothing whenever possible, or at least cut off the drawstrings, tabs and knots.
  • Stay away from the Danger Zones around the bus.
  • Don't try to pick up something dropped near the bus, the bus driver might not see you.
  • Remember that other motorists don't always stop for a stopped school bus.
  • Use extreme caution whenever getting on or off the bus.

Nothing is more precious than a child's life
